Our last day!

Its an absolutely bizarre thing to think that today is my last day of working for the next 6-8 months before Lee and I take off on our big adventure - it's his last day too but he is tres hungover from his work christmas do last night so it might be a slightly different enjoyment.
I was on the tube this morning, slightly hungover, squashed up next to some guys woolly coat and I actually felt nostalgic. No more rushing from one underground line to another at 830am, no more pushing and shoving with grumpy city workers, no more getting up at 7am and wrestling with my snooze button, no more watching the world go by at work - though my current job that I say goodbye to, has been one of the best experiences I've had! So thanks to the guys!

But back to my point - how fun to think I'm just going to be permanently on holiday from 5pm this evening.

No amount of Homer Simpson's whoo hoo's could top mine!

Just had the rudest girl on the phone to me from Carphone Warehouse Billing section - they want money and when its money, nothing else matters. It makes my blood boil because she couldn't have given a damn about the fact that they have not sent me an itemised bill since I moved houses in late July - I have called and spoken to their moronic agents 6 times in the past 4 months to update my address details and up until the 28th Nov they still didnt have it down correctly. But they still expect me to pay the bill even though I have no bloody clue what I am paying for, its amazing how they justify themselves by saying "I'm sorry but we will not be able to do anything for you until you settle your bill" and I replied in awe "How the heck am I supposed to pay a bill that I have no idea what its for?" - they are the Foxtons of the Mobile Phone industry. Its pathetic.

I have had my limit of "Customer Service Agents" honestly they don't know sh*t from chocolate. I wish, just wish a company would put some educated, intelligent human beings on the other side of the phone - after all we're all paying them our hard earned money that keeps them in business. So what the hell for?

Off to my Spanish lesson - where I will learn to cuss appropriately.
